Sil Hamilton
AI Researcher

I’m Sil. I work with language models. I’m a researcher-in-residence at the journalism non-profit Hacks/Hackers and technology advisor at Health Tech Without Borders.

I’m a researcher. I have workshop papers at ACL (WNU), COLING (SIGHUM), and AAAI (Creative AI). I’ve taught a course at the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin, too.

I’m in the news. Wired, The Financial Times, and Le Devoir among others have all mentioned me or my work.

I give talks. I've spoken for Harvard's CS50 (Introduction to Computer Science), the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, the Brown Institute for Media Innovation, and the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

I’m looking to collaborate. Please talk to me on Twitter, over email, and through LinkedIn. I’m also on Libera and OFTC as srhm.

I consult on AI strategies and implementations. You can find my code on SourceHut (preferred) and GitHub. My CV is here. Please contact me if you’re interested.
